Tourism and Terrorism

Introduction

The papers which form this special issue hold diverse views respecting terrorism and tourism, but they share the same concern respecting the protection of lives. Basically, the project of modernity has changed the basis of authority, whereby society holds the power. This is not different with terrorism. In earlier decades, terrorists targeted very important persons to cause a psychological harm to society. This ranged from politicians to celebrities. But now, things seem to be different. If the terrorist attacks in earlier centuries were directed against top-ranked politicians, today lay-people’s integrity is compromised. Lay people are targeted by terrorists.
